Formulated for clients with the lightest of blonde or pre-lightened hair, the NXT Light Beige Blondes counter natural warmth and balance out yellowy undertones. With equal components of blue, yellow and ash pigments these are the perfect shade family for creating creamy blondes.
Whether you want to inject some life into a natural blond, neutralise some unwanted undertones or refresh the mid-lengths and ends of previously coloured hair, these ammonia-free mildly oxidising light beige blonde semi-permanent tints have been formulated to last between 18-24 shampoos.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect shade from the colour chart at the client consultation, activate by mixing one part light beige colour with two parts of our specialist low peroxide cream developer (adjust to 1:1.5 for clients with more white hair). For best results apply to clean, towel-dried hair using a tint bowl and brush and leave to develop for 20 minutes. Always carry out a patch test before the first application of NXT intense brown shades. The colourist should apply a small amount of dye to the inner arm or behind the ear. Do not continue with the colouring process if any irritation or redness occurs within 48 hours of the dye being applied.
NXT mildly-oxidising semi permanent colours are sometimes referred to as tone-on-tone, demi, and quasi-permanent colours. When the Light Beige Blonde shade is mixed with the releaser and applied to the hair, a series of clever chemical reactions occur to deploy the hair colour. Small and medium colour molecules in the dye penetrate the cuticle and in part the cortex to oxidise it and inject new pigments. These are washed out of the hair in 18-24 shampoos.
When the mixture of Light Beige Blonde and the specialist NXT releaser is applied to the hair, it penetrates the cuticle and in part the cortex, which is oxidised by the hydrogen peroxide found in the releaser. The chosen shade then deposits small and medium colour molecules to change the appearance of the hair. As the colour is ammonia free and developer very low in strength, much of the new pigment is closer to the surface. Therefore, these semi-permanent colours have a stunning high shine.
It’s all down to a series of clever chemical reactions. Once the colour pigments, when mixed with the releaser, have penetrated and oxidised within the hair’s cuticle (and to a lesser extent the cortex) the colour molecules from the Light Beige Blonde shade are released into the hair shaft and the new hue is created. These colours are light-reflecting and deliver high shine as most of the colour pigment is deposited closer to the surface.
The semi-permanent colour change occurs in the cuticle and in part the cortex, which is penetrated and mildly oxidised by hydrogen peroxide in the releaser. Small and medium colour molecules in the Light Beige Blonde dye release the new pigments to create a beautiful new hue. As most of the change occurs close to the surface these quasi permanent colours deliver a high shine.
To allow the Light Beige Blonde to change the appearance of the hair, the colour, mixed with the developer first needs to penetrate the cuticle and in part the cortex and oxidise it. Once these chemical reactions have taken place, the small and medium colour molecules and pigments are deposited in the hair structure for colour that lasts for up to 24 shampoos.
NXT Mildly-Oxidising Semi Permanent Light Beige Blonde shades allow you to transform the appearance of your client’s hair through several chemical reactions. The hydrogen peroxide in the releaser allows small and medium colour molecules to penetrate the cuticle and in part the cortex and oxidise it. As much of the pigment in the new colour is close to the surface you’ll be wowed by the high shine – especially on virgin hair.
Colouring hair with NXT mildly-oxidising semi-permanent shades is so simple that it can be easy to forget that there is actually some pretty clever science taking place. The hydrogen peroxide in the releaser, along with the colour pigments penetrates the cuticle and in part the cortex and mildly oxidises it.. Another chemical reaction sees the small and medium colour molecules from the Light Beige Blonde shade deposited into the hair and bond with the hair’s structure to change the appearance of the locks for 18-24 shampoos.
